I know it's difficult to judge the price of a tattoo because they are unique etc.

But I was just wondering if anyone could give a rough estimation on price of / time taken for these two tattoos.

The one on the arm wraps right the way round the forearm

Depends how long they spend on them and how much attention to detail they spend doing. Also, I don't think there is a "standard" tattoo price.
The guy I'd go to is £40 an hour (though he might do it cheaper for me as he's good mates with my dad and knocks money off for my dad's tats).
I've heard of other, less reputable places charging £20 an hour, while others don't charge by time but a random number they seem to have pulled out of a hat.
Each place is subjective.

Edit: I'm liking the wings. I wanted to get something like that done on my back but it's currently a design in progress that ahs other bits and bobs in it.

Yea I know it's unique and you cant tell etc. I already said that, I just wondered roughly how many hours it might have taken?

I think the wings took like 4 sittings or something, so how many hours are there in a sitting roughly?

Again, it's entirely subjective.
Some people wuss out because of pain/get fidgety after an hour, some go for longer spells. My mate got the first part of his sleeve tattooed in a 4-hour sitting.

Edit: They are your brothers tattoos? They why don't you ask him how much they cost? :teehee:
If he doesn't want to tell you, then respect his privacy.

Where abouts are you?

London prices range from around £60-£100 per hour, at least if you go to someone who has a well-known reputation for producing quality work (Jolie Rouge, Into You, Blood Brothers, Evil From the Needle etc.)

Outlines can be done quickly, colouring takes ages, so it depends on how much colour detail you want. A full sleeve (the entire arm) in colour will take about 20 hours to do.

The first picture of the forearm tattoo, would probably take about 3-5 hours if it was full colour or had detailed shading. The back tattoo, maybe about 5 to 8 hours.

So you're probably looking at about £500+ for the back tattoo and and £300-£400 for the forearm.

The arm one would probably take between 1hour1/2 - 2 hours. And depending on where you go, mine charges £60 an hour.

The wings, i'm not too sure, i've never had a backpiece. But I would imagine at least 3 hours, more than likely much longer.

Yea we had a look at prices in this area, they are around £60 an hour. Cheers, that's really helpful
